Once again, NetApp® StorageGRID® is enabling more hybrid multicloud capabilities for its customers. Today, with the announcement of StorageGRID 11.3 software, customers have more validated cloud choices with the addition of Microsoft Azure and Azure Blob Storage support, so they can take advantage of a new low-cost storage tier in the cloud. The Azure Archive Storage tier is fully supported by the latest release of StorageGRID, reflecting more collaborations between NetApp and Microsoft to further enable the new class of hybrid cloud data services.
As object storage becomes a primary storage platform for performant object workloads, on-premises space is often a limited resource. You need to keep frequently accessed data on the premises, but you want to move cooler data that is rarely accessed to a less-performant tier to save space and money. However, it can be complicated to know when and what data to move.
